it's an audi. maybe it knows how much i've talked shit about audis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m well aware of that bullshit industry of the time. They also gave women laudanum for “hysteria”.
Avatar 10:10pm coelacanth∅:

Franco regarding your last posts -the water is exclusively on the passenger side.
and the plumbers goop (aquarian goop, etc...same thing) could only work if i can figure out how the water's getting in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

The song is suitably apocalyptic
Avatar 10:12pm Little Danny:

I find this Broadcast track genuinely unsettling
Avatar 10:12pm Franco Twinkie:

Funny, being the lord of the underworld and all that, you would think I could summons a good pizza to hell. Nope. I know a lot of you folks upstairs are having pizza tonight, so you think you could save me a slice or two. If every one just gives me one slice I will have pizza for eternity! Maybe I wouldn't be so evil if I could just get some good pizza.
Avatar 10:13pm Little Danny:

@Matt: GOOD. I want you awake, bud
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Matt from New Orleans:

Pizza is far better in the LA region that it was 15 years ago
Avatar 10:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, you are right about that.
Avatar 10:14pm coelacanth∅:

you have to wait for someone who's recently discovered a lactose intolerance who's offered a free pizza to say "damn this pizza to hell".
then it's all yours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

What the hell was that last track about?

I was referring to the seancing song

@Matt: "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde"?

Gotcha. It's mostly about atmosphere I'd say.

Why was it produced?

The last few songs have a nice sloshy quality,
Avatar 10:20pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, You're a pretty sharp cookie. You want to work for me on a part time basis? You could work your own hours and keep all the money and worldly possessions, I just want the souls...and some pizza.

you might have to buy out my contract with optimum online. they don't take pizzas, just souls. probably worth the investment.

As a portal to Hell, Carlsbad Cavern is certainly functional, but the storms drains next to The Rose Bowl in Pasadena are truly horrifying. And smelly too!

Do y'all have any fave haunted house movies? Big fan of the Changeling, the Conjuring (first one only), Hell House, and the Haunting of Hill House (both the late '50s original and recent remake)

No Trick or Treaters so far, we may have to eat all the candy ourselves. Greetings, haunted blueberries.

Today The Twighlight Zone is fifty years old. They had a great show about it this afternoon on KCRW. I only heard part of it, but they have and archive.

It’s a very loose remake of a good Korean movie The Quiet Family
Avatar 10:54pm Franco Twinkie:

I must say, this evening when I was driving home the sky was a brilliant pumpkin orange because of all the smoke.
Avatar 10:55pm Little Danny:

Good evenin' ParUbi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm chresti:

That sounds like a fun movie, Matt. Sounds a little like Beetlejuice
Avatar 10:57pm Little Danny:

@Franco: Whaat? Twilight Zone started in the late '50s no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s way weirder and darker and bloodier than Beetlejuice
Avatar 10:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny, The Four Skulls Of Johnathan Drake is another good one that scared the crap out of me as a youngster.
Avatar 10:59pm Little Danny:

Thanks for the hot tip, Franco!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Matt from New Orleans:

Happiness of the Katakuris is on Amazon Prime apparently
Avatar 11:00pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny, they had real experts on the subject. I'm going to listen to the whole show later. I might be mixed up, but I don't think so.
Avatar 11:02pm coelacanth∅:

i watched the twilight zone in the 60s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm fleep:

"Where Is Everybody?" is the first episode of the American anthology television series The Twilight Zone. It was originally broadcast on October 2, 1959 on CBS.
Avatar 11:05pm Little Danny:

I know that episode!
Avatar 11:06pm Franco Twinkie:

In the program they talk about how Rod Serling saw all kinds of awful stuff during WW2. Well, when we were in high school my sister had a friend who's dad saved Rod's life in a combat situation. They got Christmas cards from Rod every year! This friend of my sisters was drop dead gorgeous and she taught me to drive a stick in her 1965 Mustang.
Avatar 11:08pm coelacanth∅:

Franco i remember that episode!
oh wait...
Avatar 11:12pm Little Danny:

@Franco: the creative wonders of PTSD!
Avatar 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

i only remember a few episodes, but one was a person having dreams of a plane getting closer and closer to the house, as a plane was in fact flying over the house every night. closer and closer until one night she (?) dreamt the plane crashed into the house and the next night insisted the family sleep in a different room, and...

i had real fears about that happening for a long time after that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm fleep:

If the dead roam free tonight, do they have to pay roaming charges all other nights?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm fleep:

And stop sniveling, whoever that is. Suck it up!
Avatar 11:22pm Little Danny:


They've figured out other ways to communicate, Fleep. Whispers, tapping, moaning, etc. It's all one really needs.
Avatar 11:23pm Little Danny:

Sometimes you can hear the laughter on these R&B records with "crying"
Avatar 11:23pm coelacanth∅:

i should take this opportunity to mention that i learned to drive a stick on a dump truck from an old character who i worked with in the cemetery.
Avatar 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

...'dude was drop dead gorgeous too.
Avatar 11:26pm Little Danny:


For the love of god please tell us this is true, coel
Avatar 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

yes Danny, it s true.

Avatar 11:30pm northguineahills:

Thanks, LD, took, the nieces out trick-or-treating. Had fun, had Doug's stream running the whole time, even though my sis-in-law went to the 9s w/ the decorations.... (she was a witch w/ a crap load of multiple fog machines.... (headstones, speakers (that I wired w/ sounds) and child friendly inflatables)
Avatar 11:30pm coelacanth∅:

- 'had a few strange experiences too, though -the mind is a powerful thing...
Avatar 11:31pm Franco Twinkie:

The episode that really gave me the creeps was the one where William Shatner was obsessed with the fortune teller machine at a table in a cafe, that had the head of Satan on the appliance. Danny, they had these machines at The Pike in Long Beach - a sleazy seaside amusement park. Remember they story about my neighbor who saw The Flying Burrito Brothers in her high school gym? Well her younger brother broke one of those devil fortune teller machines by sticking a fork into it while their family was having dinner at The Pike.
Avatar 11:32pm Little Danny:

NGH! Dark welcome good man.

I would love a fog machine for everyday use
Avatar 11:33pm coelacanth∅:

i wonder if that means he killed satan or he'll be spending eternity with him...
Avatar 11:36pm Franco Twinkie:

I think he is a prison guard now, so I guess he is in Hell.
Avatar 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

another and maybe my favorite twilight zone episode is the dude loves this chinese restaurant and the fortune cookie's always true, or comes true.
'guy meets woman, takes her there, everything goes well, fortune cookies come and his says you are going to die. he freaks and gets inconsolably angry. this does not impress the lady who doesn't believe that the cookies never lie, so she leaves. he goes walking then decides to go back for another meal and see what the cookie will say. he can't seem to eat enough; orders item after item and still feels hungry. finally gives up and asks for the check (& fortune cookie)
fortune cookie says "you're dead".
Avatar 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

well,Danny someone needs to drop those disused vehicles into the ground.
anyway 'twas long ago. i left after 5 years, seeing that it was a dead-end job.
Avatar 11:51pm Franco Twinkie:
